`R&B` star Rihanna tops UK charts again this year

London: Rihanna has become the first artist in 39 years to top the UK`s albums and singles charts twice in the same year with different releases.

The 23-year-old singer`s new disc `Talk That Talk` debuted at number one, while her Calvin Harris collaboration, `We Found Love`, enjoyed another week in pole position, reported Contactmusic.

Rihanna previously scored a chart double in the UK in January, when `Loud` was the country`s biggest selling album and `What`s My Name`, her track with rapper Drake, was the most popular single.

The Bajan beauty is the first female to achieve the feat, while British rock band T-Rex was the last act to do so in May 1972.

Boyband One Direction`s debut `Up All Night` is at number two, and Michael Buble falls is at three with Christmas.

Meanwhile, former The X Factor star Olly Murs takes second place in the singles countdown with `Dancy With Me Tonight` and rapper Flo Rida slips one place to three with `Good Feeling`.
